Today, we celebrated Constitution Day, and Dan Joseph took to the streets to ask people how they felt about our founding document. He also asked people if there was anything they would change. In the wake of the horrific shooting at the Washington Navy Yard, one individual made an interesting point about yesterday’s mass shooting at the Navy Yard in the nation’s capital:
“I know a lot of people are concerned about guns these days, but you know if everybody had arms, then there wouldn’t be these problems.
“My son was at Marine Barracks — at the Navy Yard yesterday – and they had weapons with them, but they didn’t have ammunition. And they said, ‘We were trained, and if we had the ammunition, we could’ve cleared that building.’ Only three people had been shot at that time, and they could’ve stopped the rest of it.”
The Navy Yard shooting brings up the legitimate issue of carrying – and using – firearms on military installations.
